FEBRUARY 1888 1893

27 Monday

Continues fine. Willie cleaned up some stuff for choppiong and went to Everton with it this forenoon. Colin McMillan and I went to the bush and we cut off 16 cuts on the same tree that they cut 13 off the but. Afternoon we all went down and we cut up a second smaller maple and a good deal of the balance of the first one, also split and piled a lot of it. the man, Mr Kennedy, fixed up the organ to day. he took from 11 oclock A.M. till after 6 P.M. to do it. Margaret and I took a drive after supper to see old Mr Loree who has been very poorly. he was a little better.

28 Tuesday

Very windy last night and considerable rain fell. threatened to be very soft and wet this morning but as the day wore on it improved a good deal. Willie and Johny started off along with Henry Duffield who had 2 steers and a sheep in his sleigh. the boys had a steer each. Johny sold for $31.00 - Willie for 33.50. Colin McMillan and I cut in the Bush from about 10.30 A.M. we helped them off with their cattle before going to the bush. we got along very well cutting wood this afternoon. they returned from Guelph in fair time, without any mishap, and did their business satisfactorily.

29 Wednesday March 1st

Weather very fine, the sun shone out the forenoon so nicely as to make it very warm where we were working. it was somewhat gouly in the afternoon and considerable of a snow shower passed over. Willie did not come to the bush this forenoon as he felt used up. Colin and got along very well in the forenoon and Willie joined us in the afternoon. I saw along with Colin for the most part. Willie splits up and piles - we have been helping to trim up some as it takes up quite a good part of the time to trim as they are so brushy.
